Partners of Youth in Ag is a Colroado State Fair Foundation annual giving program.  The Colorado State Fair Foundation is a Colorado nonprofit 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization (Federal Tax ID #80-0613864).  A portion of your contribution may be tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

Recognition benches are a benefit of joining the Colorado State Fair Foundation's Partners of Youth in Ag giving program. 

Recognition Benches

at the Colorado State Fair

Join the Colorado State Fair Foundation Partners of Youth in Ag giving program by purchasing a recognition bench.  We invite you and your family, business or company to purchase a recognition bench to be displayed for 5 years at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. ​By purchasing a bench, you are supporting the Foundations mission to enhance youth programming, education, and experiences at the Colorado State Fair. 

This program adds seating to the fairgrounds, supports the nonprofit mission of the Foundation and is a great way to honor family, loved ones and memories. Benches are eight feet long and made of thermoplastic-coated steel.


Benches are placed throughout the fairgrounds and showcased  for 5 years.  You select the color of the bench (red, blue, green, or yellow.)


If you would like to have your bench displayed at the 2020 Colorado State Fair, orders must be received by June 1st. Otherwise orders can be placed at any time.  


A minimum contribution of $2,500 for each bench.  Each bench is covered by a five-year limited warranty. Benches will remain on the state fairgrounds for five years.  After five years the Foundation will contact you to arrange pick up or you can donate your bench to the fair or renew your contribution for another five years. 


Benches can be personalized in two places; with a 14-character message on the backrest and one 8.5" x 7" tamperproof plaque that is attached to the backrest.  We invite business names or logos to be included on the plaque.  However, text on the backrest may not include name, business name or advocacy message.  Only fun fair messages allowed on the backrest (example: State Fair Fun, Family & Fun, We Love Horses, I Ate A What?, Fair Rocks!, AG is Cool!).  You will receive a proof before it goes into production.  The Colorado State Fair reserves the right to edit or reject submissions.
